Strawberry Gin Fizz

Strawberry Gin Fizz
Remember that Strawberry-Infused Gin that I shared last week?  How about those Strawberry Ice Cubes?  I bet you knew that they were destined to hang out together in a cocktail... for Valentine's Day.  I mean, there was pink... and of course red... but the real giveaway?  It was the hearts.

I almost went sweet.  I actually already had a plan.  There was a Towering Flourless Chocolate Cake on the horizon.  TOWERING!  But oddly enough, I am still sweeted-out from Christmas (and the month or so leading up to it).

So I put that baby on the back-burner.  Just for now.  I know that I need an irresistible flourless chocolate cake in my future.  Especially since it's towering.  Ummm... near future, thankyouverymuch.

Now, if you don't want to make heart-shaped ice cubes, then obviously you can make trusty ol' cubes.  They're just as fun.  Plus, they're bigger.  But if you DO decide to treat yourself to a couple of these lightly fizzy cocktails, do yourself a favor and make the ice cubes!  As they melt down, the pulpy strawberry emerges from the ice.  It's like a bonus.

Plus, it's always good to have food with your cocktails... No?

Keywords: beverage alcohol gin strawberries Valentines Day

Ingredients (2 cocktails)




Instructions
Combine infused gin, simple syrup, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker with a few "regular" ice cubes. Shake vigorously. Strain into glass filled with strawberry ice cubes. Top off with club soda.

notes:
If you haven't infused any gin, or don't want to, you could also muddle a couple of strawberry with a few rosemary needles in the bottom of a cocktail strainer before adding the gin and simple syrup. Shake and strain into glass and finish in the same manner.
